Most probably, Microsoft will be unwrapping its much-awaited and also one of the long-rumored device – Microsoft Surface Phone this year. Compared to laptops, the brand has had a limited success in the mobile market, which is flooded by successful companies such as Apple, Samsung, Huawei, and others. Previously, the company was thought of offering a handset probably using the same technology as used for the Surface Book, Surface Pro as well as Surface Studio. Hopefully, the upcoming Microsoft Surface Phone in Dubai will defy all odds and become the next best thing in the industry.
Hence, lets us now look at the few details we have gathered about the phone.
In order to compete with the industry biggies such as Apple phones and Samsung phones, this device certainly needs to have the most compelling software and advanced hardware specs. Hence, here is what we expect of the device.
Based on the Microsoft Surface phone rumors, it will come in three variants – Consumer Edition, Business Edition and Enthusiast Edition. Most probably, the first variant will have an affordable Microsoft Surface phone price in Dubai. The Business Edition is speculated to replace the BlackBerry whereas the third one with high-end specs will rival with Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and other popular phones. Besides, there are also rumors suggesting that the new device will have all-metal aesthetics to match up with the Microsoft Surface Book as well as Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
Since we are expecting to see three variants of this handset, it is more likely that they will have three different screen sizes. But a few sources are also hinting at a 5.7-inch edge-to-edge QHD display for all the models. These screens may use ClearBlack AMOLED technology and might offer a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. Several Lumia phones including Microsoft Lumia 950 were based on the ClearBlack technology that ensured low reflections, great contrast, and high clarity.
There are no image or information leaks of Microsoft Surface Phone in UAE in terms of camera specs. But expectations are high particularly for this segment as many phones such as Nokia 8, Huawei P10, and others are bestowed with dual-camera setups. Previously, one of the rumors suggested that its main camera will have a 21MP sensor and the front one will get an 8MP sensor.
As these rumors came out long ago, we cannot completely count on it. But the features of Microsoft Surface phone, especially camera is anticipated to be of high-level, we might certainly see much better than this. Hopefully, there will also be some sort of Intel RealSense arrangement capable of taking 3D images. Exciting isn’t it?
As far as battery is concerned, we literally have no idea how its battery life would be. But speculations indicate that it will sport a large battery that might use the Quick charge 4.0 technology and get support to fast as well as wireless charging.
Apart from these, the Microsoft Surface Phone might support different accessories such as a stylus, keyboard, a built-in projector and a fingerprint scanner in the screen. It is good if the handset also features an iris scanner for added security.
Given that it is a Microsoft device, we can anticipate the upcoming phone to run on the Windows 10 operating system. It is likely to run a number of desktop applications through Continuum, which is a feature that allows connecting phones to a display and use them like a PC & laptop. Probably, the company wants its new device to be a perfect alternative to a computer and hence, such features are expected.
In addition to these, we can expect the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood. There is no idea of the GPU it might come with. When it comes to storage, the entry-level variant might have 3GB RAM with 32GB internal memory and the mid-range model might get 6GB RAM with 128GB onboard storage. Meanwhile, the top-end variant is anticipated to come with 8GB RAM probably with internal storage of 500GB.
From the past few years, so much has been said and still being told about the Microsoft Surface phone launch date in UAE. Last year, several rumors have indicated that the device will enter the market. But even till date, there is no proper confirmation or news about the exact Microsoft Surface phone launch date in UAE.
AS it is being regarded as a flagship with the best of features, we can certainly anticipate the Microsoft Surface Phone price in UAE to be a bit expensive. Neither rumors nor any official reports have given an updated about the Microsoft Surface Phone’s price details yet.
